Perfumes are a must in every woman’s arsenal. They are one of the trademarks or signature of the modern woman.
Choosing the right scent is very important because it can influence the way people perceive you and react towards you. It could be the difference between you getting a job or contract, seriously!
Even though every season, there are must have fragrances, there are a few things YOU should consider before shelling out £50 and above on the latest scent.
Do you like sweet, flowery or strong scents? Do you like them to last the whole day? Parfum or Eau de toilette? Most people wonder what the difference is between Eau de Parfum and Eau de toilette. It’s a matter of time and duration really.
Eau de Parfum lasts about 3 hours longer than Eau de toilette, which is why they usually cost a bit more.
I tend to go for a mix of floral and fruity scents in the spring/summer and warmer fragrances in the fall/winter as it reflects the season.
If you’re thinking of replacing your almost finished bottle or are looking for something new to try, here are my current top 5 perfumes that I think you should try this season:
Estee Lauder modern muse 100ml £88
Jimmy Choo blossom 100ml £62
The body shop eau de toilette strawberry 30ml £13
Versace bright crystal 50ml £50
